- World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 119.00
In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader to experience the joy of appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the Second Law is not infinitely incomprehensible as commonly stated in textbooks of thermodynamics... more...
- Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 275.00
Natural phenomena consist of simultaneously occurring transport processes and chemical reactions. These processes may interact with each other and lead to instabilities, fluctuations, and evolutionary systems. This book explores the unifying role of thermodynamics in natural phenomena. Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics, Second Edition analyzes the transport... more...

PREFACE NOTES ON NOTATION Chapter 1: Introduction to Statistical Methods and the Classical Mechanics of Interacting Particles Chapter 2: Phase Space and the Liouville Equation Chapter 3: Reduced Density Functions and the Reduced Liouville Equation Chapter 4: Equilibrium Solution to the Liouville Equation and the Thermodynamic Properties of Matter... more...
- Springer New York 2006; US$ 129.00
This book discusses mathematical models that are based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics. These are intended for the analysis of possible results of diverse natural and production processes. Unlike traditional models, these allow readers to view the achievable set of partial equilibria with regards to constraints on kinetics,... more...
- Springer 2008; US$ 159.00
This book offers a homogeneous presentation of the many faces of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The first part is devoted to a description of the nowadays thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory of non-equilibrium processes. This part of the book may serve as a basis to an introductory course dedicated to first-year graduate students... more...
- Springer 2008; US$ 219.00
This book deals with the formulation of the thermodynamics of chemical and other systems far from equilibrium, including connections to fluctuations. It contains applications to non-equilibrium stationary states and approaches to such states, systems with multiple stationary states, stability and equi-stability conditions, reaction diffusion systems,... more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 269.00
This book is focused on the latter applications and offers a rather unique viewpoint in comparison with the existing combustion literature. the central argument of the book and the subsequent applications are clearly laid out and discussed, resulting in a very interesting read. The book provides valuable access to numerous experimental and theoretical... more...

The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work.... more...
- Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 123.99
This text presents a concise and thorough introduction to the main concepts and practical applications of thermodynamics and kinetics in materials science. It is designed with two types of uses in mind: firstly for one or two semester university course for mid- to - upper level undergraduate or first year graduate students in a materials-science-oriented... more...
